AMOS-17 was successfully launched on August 6, 2019, by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

It is located at 17 degrees East where it reaches across the African continent, along with the Middle East and Asia.

AMOS-17 is the most advanced high-throughput satellite to provide satellite communication services to Africa.

 

At a Glance

Coverage: Africa, the Middle East, and Europe

Beams:  Ka-band, Ku-band, and C-Band services.

Life Expectancy: Over 15 years, 2039

AMOS-17  operates from 17° East and will expand and strengthen Spacecom’s coverage of the growing satellite service markets in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. AMOS-17 will offer Ka-band, Ku-band, and C-Band services.

AMOS-17 C-band uniquely combines the benefits of HTS – High Throughput Satellite, with C-band’ superior service availability, making it the best match for any Sub-Sahara project.

AMOS-17 is a state-of-the-art multi-band high-throughput satellite (HTS), utilizing Boeing’s advanced digital processor platform, that will provide reliable and flexible satellite solutions and offer a significant competitive advantage for our customers.

It has a combination of broad regional beams and high throughput spot beams to maximize throughput and spectral efficiency.

The combination of the inherent flexibility of the digital platform with a mix of fixed and steerable beams ensures a fast response to changing customers’ needs.

The AMOS-17 satellite provides a great fit for Spacecom’s expansion strategy, offering innovative design with capabilities that provide flexible service offerings to meet the growing demands of our customers.

AMOS-17 will enhance our capabilities as a growing and customer-focused satellite operator.
